ISER examines outflow of young people from fishing communities

Researchers from the University of Alaska are studying why more young people are leaving fishing-dependent communities, and what might make them more likely to stay. The project is meant to shed light on the concerns of older teens and young adults in their early 20’s who see few economic opportunities in their home towns.  Petersburg is one of the towns included in the project.
